Alloy 600 is a non-magnetic nickel-chromium-iron high temperature alloy with an excellent combination of high strength, hot and cold workability and high corrosion resistance. It has good high temperature strength up to 1150ºC and displays freedom from stress corrosion.
The high chromium content of Alloy 600 raises its oxidation resistance, whilst the high nickel content provides good corrosion resistance under reducing conditions. The alloy also displays very good levels of resistance to chloride stress-corrosion cracking, ammonia, pitting in fresh and salt water, exhaust gases and most organic acids and compounds. Alloy 600 also performs well at cryogenic temperatures.
